Tumwater Falls Park reviews
Long trail amidst greenery and along the water body and Tumwater falls. Very pleasant surroundings and beautiful scenery. more »
Okay, so I was not keen on going on a walk in the middle of a city to see a dirty river and garbage. Boy, were my expectations WAY off! This is a gorgeous piece of nature near an old industrial... more »
I love this little gem in the middle of the bustling area of Olympia and Tumwater. When you walk the whole trail, you are almost teleported to a different world that feels so secluded from the hustle and bustle of the world around you. There are some pretty interesting plaques that explain the history of the falls from the late 1800's with the old Mill that was there, the power station, the original capital brewery, through the Olympia brewery, which closed in the early 2010's. There is a cool fish ladder where you can even watch the salmon spawn if you're lucky to be there during the spawning season. Very cool!
The upper loop is a lovely walk. Leashed dogs are allowed and its kid safe, but still keep an eye on them. There is also a great new park down below. Its a little bit of a walk so I suggest driving. Overall its a perfect oasis in the middle of Tumwater and is enjoyable in any season.
